On September 4, 2017, Kate’s third pregnancy was announced by the Palace. The baby would be a new brother or sister for Prince George and Princess Charlotte both of whom were still young children. And just like her previous pregnancies, Kate suffered from hyperemesis gravidarum throughout, a serious condition for pregnant women.

Hyperemesis gravidarum can be dangerous or even life-threatening. Pregnant women with HG can suffer from dehydration, weight loss, vomiting and a feeling of faintness. And yet Kate dealt with the condition incredibly well. While pregnant she still attended events; if not for the announcement and the bump, fans might not even have known that she was carrying a child at all.
